Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderin reveals that he is hoping to make a “fresh start” under new manager Sam Allardyce after making a slow start to life as an Everton player, according to a report on Sky Sports.

The Frenchman joined Everton from fellow Premier League club Manchester United and the Toffees expected him to develop during his time at the club, but unfortunately the midfielder has lost confidence and form.

He has found himself on the substitutes bench quite often recently but is hoping to start fresh under the new manager and hopes he can make a good impression on him during training sessions.

Schneiderlin may start for Everton in their final group game of a disastrous UEFA Europa League campaign against Apollon Limassol tonight and believes that this could be a chance to show the manager that he is good enough to start matches.

Since I (started to) play football, in every game you have something to prove. That is part of being a football player. Every game you have to show what you can do and there is not going to be any difference (against Limassol). We are going to do our maximum to win the game.

The Blues face Liverpool on Sunday in the Merseyside Derby and majority of the first team players are expected to be rested tonight ahead of that game.
